About SAAAPM

The Society of Academic Associations of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine (SAAAPM) is the umbrella organization for the four associations listed below. The umbrella organization SAAAPM does not have individuals as members, but associations as its members. Decisions will be made by input from the four associations as represented in the governing council. The four associations are:

(1) The Association of Academic Anesthesia Chairs (AAAC) representing the Chairs of the academic departments in this country.
(2) The Association of Anesthesiology Core Program Directors (AACPD) which is representative of ACGME designated core program directors.
(3) The Association of Anesthesiology Subspecialty Program Directors (AASPD) representative of the currently recognized subspecialty program directors.
(4) The Association of Anesthesiology Program Administrators and Educators (AAPAE) representing program administrators and educators of ACGME approved anesthesiology residency or fellowship programs.

At this time, we are extending an invitation for each Chair, Core Program Director, ACGME approved Subspecialty Program Director and administrators/educators serving in an Academic Anesthesiology Department to become a member of this Society.

Each Academic Anesthesiolgy Department needs to pay Yearly Dues which are $775 and are levied with the Chairperson of the Department. At this time, we are accepting applications under this dues structure for membership into either AAAC by the current academic anesthesiology Chair as well as into AACPD by the current ACGME designated Anesthesiology Core Program Director, the Association of Academic Subspecialty Program Directors (AASPD) for the current six anesthesiology affiliated ACGME approved Fellowship Program Directors (Pain Medicine, Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology, Critical Care Medicine, Pediatric Anesthesiology, Obstetric Anesthesia, and Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine) and program administrators or educators of ACGME approved anesthesiology residency or fellowship programs (AAPAE).
